REST has long been the status quo for APIs, but recently, GraphQL has exploded in popularity due to its excellent developer experience and declarative approach to data fetching. In this talk, you’ll discover what GraphQL is and how it can simplify the workflow of front-end developers. We’ll cover how to implement GraphQL in your application via the Apollo stack, a collection of open-source GraphQL tools for web & native platforms.
Through hands-on examples using Apollo tools, you’ll learn how integrating GraphQL in your application will enable you to:
- Adapt to new data requirements without adding a new endpoint
- Debug painlessly & gain visibility into your API
- Reduce state management boilerplate
By the end, you’ll leave with all of the resources you need to start developing your application with GraphQL & Apollo.
Peggy is an open source engineer on the Apollo team at Meteor Development Group, where she helps build tools for the GraphQL ecosystem.
